    EWU Online Courses

    EWU offers online courses through the EWU Extended Campus Office.  Online courses are split into two sections: state support and self support.  Admitted, degree seeking, tuition-paying students on the Cheney or Riverpoint campuses may take the state support sections without paying additional tuition, although there is a $25 per credit delivery fee.  Students taking courses from an off-campus location are classified as "self-support" and pay a per credit rate for online courses.  Please see the Special Program Tuition Rate page for additional information.

    Financial aid may be available for online coursework for students pursuing a bachelors or professional degree, provided enrollment occurs prior to the 10th class day of each quarter. Special regulations apply to financial aid recipients taking online courses:

    Independent Study Courses

    Independent study courses are different than online courses. You may take independent study courses by registering through your academic department. These credits show as regularly enrolled classes in our system; no additional action is necessary. However, these courses must be complete by the end of the quarter for you to meet the Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements.
